La Boqueria, Barcelona
(3.1/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Boqueria and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona itinerary planner.

  • Many colors, interesting place you have to visit once to see it but do not buy anything and do not eat anything. Very high prices and you can find the same products in half prices. Over all you should...  more »
  • In this market you can find everything. Very crowded and animated by tourists and locals. I love jobs fruits with so many different varieties, shakes and dishes prepared with different classes. You can eat in the many restaurants that exist in the area. It is worth a visit and shop around seeing the atmosphere and the colors of the products

  • La Boqueria market is an important milestone in Barcelona! Located on La Rambla, shortly after the Church of Bethlehem. You will be overwhelmed by smells and tastes. I ate divinely and tasted excellent jamon iberico! If you want to spend a little more, I recommend that you sit down to enjoy good fish and maybe even of percebes!

  • Looking at the reviews over a year ago i believe the 'all you can eat' buffet options were not available. Went with some friends today just by casuality and we had the 10euro all you can eat salad, sea food, etc...it was worth it! Clean, nicely decorated, the host was very friendly (unlikely for spanish people) and overall it was a nice enviroment. Maybe they've changed administration or something..anyways i will definitely recommend it to anyone for a quick pit stop.
  • Tried it tonight. For Barcelona, they literally must've had to work hard to make it taste that bad. The worst food I've had in all of Spain. Save your twenty six euros and go anywhere else.
  • Like everybody said, avoid at all cost. I feel unfortunate that we stumbled upon this place on our first date of arrival. The food is terrible and overpriced.
  • Soggy and unfresh salad, expensive and not clean?!
  • Expensive, horrible food. the chicken with thympotato was a coalbricket, which has never seen any herbs. the chicken paella had 2,5 chicken pieces in it and was burned. The first real bad experience in Barcelona!!!
